Before World War Two, there were many in America that did not see the coming threat of Nazi Germany. Appeasement was, of course, legal. If the appeasers had won control of Congress would we all be speaking German now? Probably. Were they a threat to the survival of our country? Obviously in hindsight yes. And yes that's a Dr. Seuss cartoon.
I wrote: "We are in America. One can certainly legally be a Cindy Sheehan."
One commenter concluded from this:
See, I thought that was the real reason she wasn't arrested and tried for any crime. They were your own words, and I'm still confused by how you can classify any law-abiding leftist American citizen an "enemy of the state" if you they can also "legally be a Cindy Sheehan". Its not logical. Leftists might be your own ideological "enemies" (and even then I think the correct word is "opponents"), but if they haven't broken any laws, they are not "enemies of the state".
Of course it is perfectly legal for one to smoke cigarettes in one's home. Does that mean one is not a danger to himself or since smoking is one of the leading causes of house fires (at least in Denmark), a danger to the rest of Society?
There are many examples of legal activities which are a direct threat to a nation's continued existence. Let me give as an example the situation in Europe.
In Europe it is perfectly legal to be a Muslim. But if you can get your brain out of your ass and actually consider what is happening in the rest of the world and do some reading other than the MSM than you will find:

Admiral Horatio Nelson may have guided the British naval fleet to a famous victory at the Battle of Trafalgar, but he faced a far tougher foe during celebrations to mark its 200th anniversary. Organizers of a re-enactment of the sea battle in 2005 decided to bill it as between a "Red Fleet” and a "Blue Fleet”, rather than Britain and its French and Spanish adversaries, describing it as a re-enactment of "an early 19th century sea battle.”
Leftists and their political correctness agenda are re-writing European history. In another generation, there may be no trace of the history of the western world.
In the European Parliament, the German Christian Democrat Hans-Gert Pöttering stated that school textbooks should be reviewed for intolerant depictions of Islam by experts overseen by the European Union and Islamic leaders. He said textbooks should be checked to ensure they promoted European values without propagating religious stereotypes or prejudice. He also suggested that the EU could co-operate with the 56-nation Organisation of the Islamic Conference to create a textbook review committee.
Jonathan Friedman, an American living in Sweden, mentions that the so-called Integration Act of 1997 proclaimed that "Sweden is a Multicultural society.” Notes to the Act also stated that "Since a large group of people have their origins in another country, the Swedish population lacks a common history. The relationship to Sweden and the support given to the fundamental values of society thus carry greater significance for integration than a common historical origin.”The Act thus implicitly states that the country of Sweden doesn’t have a history, only the various ethnic groups that live there. Native Swedes, who have shaped the country for centuries, have thus been reduced to just another ethnic group in Sweden, with no more claim to the country than the Kurds or the Somalis who arrived there last Thursday. The political authorities of the country have thus erased their own people’s history, without staging any public debate about this. I have read that Muslim immigrants in Sweden say that Sweden doesn’t have a common cultural or religious heritage; it’s just made up of different groups tied together by the use of a common language. It is thus "racist” to even talk about how "we” should integrate "them,” since there is no "we” to begin with.
Following threats from Muslim hardliners, some of the largest companies in England were afraid to display the English national flag during the football World Cup. In Sweden, a man was attacked and nearly killed for the crime of wearing clothes with his own national flag while Sweden was participating in the World Cup. Sweden, of course, has the same Christian cross in its flag as does England, and apparently, some "Multicultural youths” found this to be an intolerable provocation. The 24-year-old man was run down by a car in the city of Malmö. According to the police, he was wearing some clothes with Swedish national symbols on them, and this "provoked some emotions.”
Malmö, Sweden’s third largest city, is set to become the first major Scandinavian city with a Muslim majority. The wave of robberies the city has witnessed is part of a "war against Swedes.” This is the explanation given by young robbers with immigrant backgrounds on why they are only robbing native Swedes. "When we are in the city and robbing, we are waging a war, waging a war against the Swedes.” "Power for me means that Swedes shall look at me, lie down on the ground and kiss my feet.”
European leftists and Muslim immigrants are on a tear to destroy the old culture and institute Islam throughout Eurabia.
What's happening in Europe will soon happen here. My only hope is that Europe wakes up and bans Islam and throws all their lefties out as well. Being a Muslim and a leftist is indeed legal in Europe, but there is no doubt by most who live there that they are enemies of their nations.

Sadly the Left gobbled up the Al Qaeda lies by the media today. It is still disgusting but not a surprise anymore that the American Left can agree with our enemy terrorists even when it involves the slaughter of US soldiers.

It looks like India now has their 7/11 to go along with Madrid’s 3/11 and our 9/11 as a series of deadly explosions rocked train stations there today. Stop the ACLU has a good roundup of coverage as this story unfolds.
But of course leftists do not think there is any immediate threat:
Point Five Blog [now defunct], 7/11 Bombing Provides Backdrop For Aggressive Global Warming-Based Anti-Terror Measures
Even as the dead remain uncounted in bombed- out commuter trains in India, Democratic strategists prepared to release their planned "Phase Two” rollout of the thunderously effective "New Direction” campaign theme, that has Republicans nationwide fearing not just for their jobs, but their viability as a national party.
While Phase One focused on domestic issues, Phase Two will bring the Democrats’ creative application of progressive theory to the realm of international terrorism. While calling terror "not really as important as far- right scaremongers would have us believe,” Dems nevertheless promised to tear into international terror rings "like Mother Sheehan with a fifty dollar gift card at Jamba Juice.”
Summoning the power of almighty Gaia, the new Democrat plan will harness the fearsome power of fractional degree shifts in global temperature to rend Islamist networks asunder.
